Bangkok-based hotel owner, operator and investor Minor Hotels is set to debut in Egypt with its Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites brand.

Oaks Egypt New Capital Apartments and Suites is scheduled to open in 2025 in the Egyptian New Administrative Capital, with construction starting early next year.

Located a short drive from Cairo, the new-build property will be housed across two wings, connected centrally at the rooftop and on the ground floor with a spacious retail area.

One wing will include a mixture of suites and studios, and one- and two-bed branded apartments, while the other will feature 203 branded suites. In total, there will be approximately 400 apartments and suites, multiple restaurants, a lobby lounge, a spa and gym, meeting and co-working spaces, and a rooftop pool deck for guests and residents.

The country’s New Administrative Capital was launched by the government in 2015, and is set to house the entire government, ministries, foreign embassies and the local headquarters of many international companies.

Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, commented:

“Minor Hotels’ upcoming debut in Egypt is strategically important for the group, continuing to grow our footprint in the MENA region and adding a new country to our portfolio. Egypt is well known as a tourism destination for its incredible history and heritage, in addition to being an important business hub. We look forward to launching the Oaks brand in the country’s new capital and we are confident it will bring a great offering to this growing masterplan development.”

The new property is owned by Margins Development, a private real estate developer in Cairo.

Minor Hotels currently boasts a portfolio of 527 hotels and resorts in 55 countries, with a total of 31 hotels in the MENA region across its Anantara, Avani, Tivoli and Oaks brands. It is set to bring its NH Collection and NH Hotels brands to the region in the future.

The group recently announced plans to expand in China:
